“North Cyprus Forum fully support of the “TOPARLANIYORUZ” blue cap campaign !
Please collect your blue plastic caps off your water bottles and bring them in to the office of Citizens Advice Cyprus on the right hand side of the road on the way to Bellapais.
Every little bit helps, let’s start collecting now and see if we can make a contribution towards well needed wheelchairs !
The Toparlanıyoruz Movement launched its “Blue Cap” campaign to provide free wheelchairs for those disabled persons in need through the collection of recyclable plastic bottle tops. (The plastic caps of all bottles such as water and coke, and milk and juice cartons all count, not just the ones coloured blue!)
Within days, tens of thousands of plastic bottle caps were brought in to the Movement headquarters in Nicosia from all over the island. The campaign continues to grow in scope and speed in 2013. In order to reach a wider public, special collection bags where bottle caps can be dropped-off have been placed in Gloria Jean’s Coffee-shop franchises in Nicosia, Kyrenia and Famagusta, Ezic Restaurants and several other places like book stores, clinics and dormitories. Toparlanıyoruz volunteers tried to spread this message further by publicising the campaign on TV and Radio channels.
We believe that all those who live on the island, (including ex-pats and even tourists) can make a serious contribution to this campaign and look forward to their support. For further information on how you can assist this campaign please call 0392 227 99 93 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

The Latest on Blue Cap campaign is tomorrow, Wednesday 27th February at 4o’clock at Toparlaniyoruz office we shall be having an activity event involving children ..”grab your paints and join us in painting the boxes for the schools that we shall give out for collecting caps in “.
Parents and children will help us to separate the colours of caps into black bags so they will be ready to be collection by the recycling company. We have already ordered our two first wheelchairs and hopefully we shall be handing them over to the two children that are in need of special care soon.”
To all of our local readers, do help support this scheme and also help those in need and all you have to give is your recycled bottle tops.
